11:44 am
six months and got nowhere. so she finally reached out to us. we contacted the va and it applied the $9300 refund towards the principal balance of monica's loan. the va explained to us that monica's refund was delayed because its loan center had been unusually busy. in a statement, it said, as soon as it became aware it took immediate action to assist monica. monica want other veterans to know if you have a disability related to your service, you might also qualify for a funding fee refund. if you have a consumer complaint, call us. 888-996-tips. or log on to nbcbayarea.com/responds. we were talking about the fact that irma is one of the strongest storms in the atlantic. a category 5, kari. >> yeah. >> you're tracking it and it could be majorly destructive. >> this will make major headlines, and for people in the caribbean, they have nowhere to go as the storm barrels toward

11:46 am
hurricane could move into hurricane. could move into miami as a category 4, so we'll be watching that. right behind irma is a category 3. you can see those two storms out there in the atlantic and this one may also develop into a hurricane over the next few days, but notice the track kind of shifts it a little fartherço the north, so this may stay out in the open waters, which would be awesome news if we could see that happen. as we bring things back home, we'll continue to keep you updated on that storm throughout the week. looks pretty good right here in the bay area, but still very smokey and hazy. not the best time to spend a lot of time outdoors because the poor air quality, and temperatures now that are in the mid-70s to lower 80s as you get ready to head out. we're looking at high temperatures today that will be reaching into the mid-80s today in san jose. upper 80s for morgan hill and gilroy up to 89 degrees. for the east bay, up to 89 degrees in danville. and hayward expecting a high of
